Gibson / Martelli - igloo

About

Inspired by the artists travels to the snowy mountains of the Canadian Rockies and developed during research at the Banff Arts Centre, Visitor investigates the experience of place: real and invented panoramas illustrate the beauty and strangeness of the natural world.

In both works, either a friendly or malevolent force is suggested, evoking the hunter being hunted, the tracker being tracked. Employing techniques used in video games, bringing exterior virtual space into the physical gallery space the exhibition plays with our apprehension of different forms of reality.

Gibson / Martelli work together as igloo. Their first work won them a BAFTA nomination and their installations, video works, online projects and performances have featured in international exhibitions and festivals including the 52nd Venice Biennale.

VISITOR is a touring exhibition produced in association with artsdepot. Commissioned by the Henry Moore Foundation and Arts Council England. Supported by The Banff Centre, Canada.
